This extremely rare wingback chair was designed by Acton Bjørn and made by the cabinetmaker Andreas Jeppe Iversen in Denmark, 1937. The chair was made for a friend of Acton Bjørn who lived on an estate in Holte, located at the northern outskirts of Copenhagen.
The generously sized chair has been newly upholstered in a dark beige/light brown sheepskin with buttoned back. The square legs are in dark lacquered beech wood.
